WHEELING, W.Va. — A West Virginia woman has been sentenced to more than four years in prison for robbing banks in three states.

Thirty-one-year-old Christine Joy Martin of Davisville was sentenced Thursday in federal court in Wheeling.

She pleaded guilty in April to robbing banks last year in Marion County, West Virginia; Washington County, Pennsylvania, and Athens County, Ohio.

The three unarmed robberies totaled $4,500.
